As we come to the end of our 30th anniversary celebrations, it is a good time to reflect on our roots, and those roots are embedded in the local community. Most of our staff, our patients and our supporters all come from the local area. Hospice of the Valleys wouldn’t exist if local people hadn’t worked together to start the organisation and it is crucial that we keep the voice of those we support as an intrinsic part of the way we adapt to the challenges moving forward.
The last two years have seen so much change, but for us at the Hospice, nothing changed, we adapted the ways in which we worked to continue supporting our patients and their loved ones, at a time when they needed us the most. We remained at the heart of our community and stepped forward when other services took a step back.
We are here for you, providing Specialist Palliative Care services, including community nursing, an in-reach service to community hospitals, bereavement support, physiotherapy, welfare rights advice, complementary therapy, emotional support and a dedicated service for patients living with a dementia diagnosis.
